    How do you mean. Catholic Priests should help the JW community? What sort of thing would you emvsiage tham doing?
    He was a top carpenter. Unfortunately there were no City and Guilds exams then to show for it.

    Real Christians do not vote.

    Are schools necessary? ("Deschooling Society", Ivan Illich).

    Interesting posts, and I had to get my talk therapy in, I am not proselytising.

    Asking what Jesus would do in a specific situation of doubt is always a fail safe way to move forward.
    For example this morning I found a wallet on the ground outside Tesco and in the ensuing doubt about what to do with it, I asked myself "what would Jesus do?"
    Thus enabling myself to carry the wallet into the shop and turn the contents into wine.

    One can be good without being a qualified priest or qualified carpenter. I would envisage Catholic priests being allowed to marry ...

    It's part of the job description already.

    Exactly my point - Catholic priests are not allowed to marry a 'human' being:

    'Throughout the Catholic Church, East as well as West, a priest may notmarry. In the Eastern CatholicChurches, a married priest is one whomarried before being ordained. TheCatholic Church considers the law of clerical celibacy to be not a doctrine, but a discipline.'

    So something, I would change and envisage them being allowed to do. I would consider it more Christian.

    According to the gospels, Jesus was a qualified teacher.

    Where is your evidence? Or are you relying on a translation?

    OK, my Aramaic, Old Hebrew and Greek are not very good. I have to rely on the English version of the NT

    Never mind. Nice try though.

    Exactly 29 minutes between the original post and the first slap at Trump. Why the big delay? People really need to up their game.

    What an odd thread.

    As a teacher I don't know how many kids I've seen expelled whose parents have claimed they did nothing wrong... or had some odd excuse for how the school messed it up.

    Yet, because it plays to what people want to believe, we have teachers on here lining up to believe the mother's claims. I've sat in meetings where parents have claimed we are only excluding a pupil because they were Muslim [we weren't] and another because they were black [we weren't] but that was what the parents claimed.

    I could not agree more, but I think this applies to so many threads in Personal. I really would like Opinion back, keep the discussions there relatively serious, and create a forum called The Playground. Our jokers could then have somewhere to express their humour without disrupting any thread in any forum, including the specialist forums. Personal would go back to its fluffy stage, but also continue to be a place for our serious personal posts.
    Concerning my one post in this thread based on the philosophies, politics and theology of Christian Anarchism, I only have myself to blame for wrapping up my comments in my talk therapy so that posters can easily avoid responding.

    Oh dear, it seems as if I have killed this thread. When I joined TES in 2006 I had an approach reminiscent of my childhood days. With my father we played "Last touch", until our mother packed us off to bed.
    I enjoyed, in 2006, to be the last one to post, and close the thread. God bless you all.

    I have had the same experience. Had it again just this week, in fact.

    Describing moral values as "Christian" is an attempt to divide and exclude

    Those who don't realise that or who genuinely believe that morals are exclusive to "christians" are like the many white men popping up on tv these days claiming there is no racism in the attitudes towards Meghan Markle and the men who insist that gender violence is not an issue because men get attacked too.

    Agree in part.

    But I think you have jumped to the wrong conclusion here. The OP has asked: What are 'shared' Christian values. The word 'morals' isn't referenced. Are you mistakenly assuming that 'values' and 'morals' have the same meaning?
